The CPIEAs are a prestigious award in the international education industry, and the winners represent the best of the best in the industry. Congratulations to all the winners for their hard work and dedication to providing exceptional international education services.
I remember the first winners in 2012 at Casa Loma Castel in Toronto. Seeing their pride and joy inspired me and showed me what our community could be. Now, we have 70+ winners from 30+ countries. No other group of quality agents works as closely as us – we’re like a family!
The CPIEAs are not only a celebration of excellence but also an opportunity for the international education community to come together and support each other. We hope that this year’s winners will inspire others to strive for excellence and continue to strengthen our community.
Our community include agents who share these values in common. Our values are leadership, integrity, quality, and giving back to the community.
Leadership is about taking ownership of one’s actions and inspiring others to do the same. It is about being proactive, taking risks, and setting an example for others to follow.
Integrity is at the heart of everything we do. It is about being honest, transparent, and ethical in all our dealings. Integrity is the foundation of trust, and without trust, we cannot build strong relationships with our clients, colleagues, and partners.
Quality is our commitment to excellence. It is about delivering work that is accurate, reliable, and meets the highest standards of professionalism. Quality is about putting in the time and effort to get things right, even when it’s not easy.
Giving back to the community is an essential part of our mission. We believe in using our skills and expertise to make a positive impact, whether that’s through volunteering, mentoring, or supporting local initiatives. We are committed to making a difference in the world and leaving a lasting legacy. These values are not just words on a page; they are the foundation of our community. They guide us in everything we do, and they inspire us to be the best we can be.
As the chairman of both CPIEAs and CLLC, we are proud to be the innovative sponsor of the CPIEAs, and we remain committed to our mission of keeping the awards completely free to apply and win. We believe it’s important to give back to the wonderful community of worldwide agencies who have supported CLLC in our efforts to recruit students. I also want to emphasize that the CPIEA is open to all agencies, regardless of their choice of school partners. This ensures fairness and equal opportunity for all participants. Congratulations to all the winners.
